Rainbow Looms

Kid’s request. Mum you have to blog about Looms. Until a few months ago we did not even know these little coloured rubber bands existed. I think I bought a packet and put into a Christmas stocking but there was little enthusiasm for trying it out.Well that has all changed and ┬áby mid term at our school you cannot take 10 paces in the grounds before finding little people covered in bands and loom kits in hand. I might add the school is discouraging wearing loom bands because they are after all jewellery.

Looms are creations from small coloured rubber bands and a loom kit that allows you to finger knit effectively. My older kids use a fish tail braid pattern for a tight band and it looks good. In fact I think the Rainbow Looms have won toy of 2014. I am excited that instead at desiring screens my little people are using their loom. I am not sure what we will do wit 100s of rainbow loom bracelets ( yes all 7 of us have our own collection). So maybe you can expect one in your Xmas stocking next year?
